Don't know if there is a shuttle but your best bets are going to be by Newark AP in Elizabeth. Other people recommend the Hyatt in Jersey City but you can't leave your car & there is no shuttle.

Reasonable & Manhatten cannot usually be used together in the same sentence. The average daily room rate for a teeny tiny (cabin sized) room in NYC is $350 per night & that's for the low end.

I have seen military personal in Class A's but I have never seen one in mess dress aboard ship.

Tuxes & dark suits are most civlians' attire.

Bring small bills. To me there's rarely anything to buy in these ports. If the excursion is paid for, we rarely bring more than $20 off the ship.

Pack water shoes. One of the best things to do in Jamaica is climb Dunns River Falls. They rip you off the rental for the rubber soled shoes. Bring your own.
